Brooks Pounders is a 2009 3B/P with a 6'5'', 220 lb. frame from Temecula, CA who attends Temecula Valley HS. Brooks has a big country strong build and is a very talented two way prospect. He has always shown a power bat and in the metrodome he showed a big power arm to go with it. He has always been able to pitch but made a huge jump from touching 90 before to now pitching 90-94. He was absolutely dominant in his inning of work with three strike outs of the 3 hitters he faced. His breaking ball and change were very good and he showed excellent command of three pitches. He also showed his big power potential at the plate with good leverage and strength in his swing. The ball flies off his bat when centered. Brooks is a very interesting 2009 for scouting departments to follow. He is a good student and has verbally committed to the USC Trojans. Aflac All American
